What is the difference between a YouTube copyright claim and a copyright strike?

Unsure? Look no more! 🔍

If you upload a YouTube video that contains copyright-protected content, your video could get a copyright strike or copyright claim.

Copyright claims (or Content ID claims) are automatically generated when a video matches audio in YouTube’s Content ID system. A Content ID claim can result in YouTube tracking the video’s statistics, or blocking the video from view. YouTube can also monetise the video by running ads against it. The revenue can then be directed to the copyright owner.

If your video has a copyright claim from RouteNote that you believe is incorrect, please let us know! You can reach us at support@routenote.com, or let us know via our contact form.

copyright strike, however, means that a copyright owner submitted a takedown request for using their copyright-protected content. You can find out more about how to resolve a YouTube copyright strike here.
